Hmmm, having a high demand for a service sounds pretty good.
The other thing you are missing is that Congress is to this very day attempting to shut down Health Care in this country.
The Republican Party hates America so much they want us all dead from lack of Health Care, unless you're rich of course, and can afford a Bull Shit Cadillac Health Care Insurance system with the cash to pay for incidentals.
He didn't have to endorse nor sign this shitty piece of legislation, and everything he initially said was an out right lie in the reality of what we ended up with.
Well, yeah, we got stuck with Romneycare.
That's why it all looks so different from what Obama was originally proposing.
This was Republican drafted legislation, voted on, and reaffirmed repeatedly even with the Tea Party militants baying at the moon since being elected by a small minority of Americans.
So we are being held economic hostages because the Republican Party is so dysfunctional it won't stand behind it's own legislation.
Help me out with that very simple concept. Republicans crafted the legislation, voted it into law, but were over run by Tea Party fanatics who have no better plan than to attack Republican legislation.
The Democrats didn't win, they took what they could get.
You may recall Obama wanted the vote on his legislation before the summer break, but the Republicans delayed, and we had the rise of the Tea Party. When Congress got back in session that was the bill, the Romney Care Bill, that the Republicans proposed, and the Democrats voted for.
It was a complete farce, but some reform is better than none.
No one knows what this recovery means, all they know is that things are better than they were.
I think Bernanke was smart enough to see the debt ceiling debate as another threat to crashing the economy.
We can't keep going on the way things are, but a crash of our economy at this point would be devastating.
The Democrats have set a series of election year battles in motion. They want control of Congress again. My feeling is there is a cure for our economy, and that if the Democrats can present it well we can get some movement in Congress to get us back on track.
"A 21-hour talkathon by Ted Cruz whipped up the GOP's tea party wing even as it complicated efforts by House GOP leaders to assemble rank-and-file support for a temporary spending measure."
I think antics like this work against the Republicans. Most conservatives, myself included, see this as grand standing over legislation the Republicans presented as an alternative to the Obama Plan of a single payer Public Health Option to Health Care, and Health Care Insurance.
The Republicans rammed this ObamaCare/RomneyCare BS through Congress, and now they want to get rid of it.
The Tea Party gave the Republicans the House, but I pretty much see that as turning over the House to a bunch of militants.
It just doesn't look good, and I think Bernanke was smart to delay past this fiasco.
You'll notice mortgage applications are rising now that rates are moving lower.
This was a part of the scheme to get past the debt ceiling debate, and in a way set things up for the 2014 elections.
My feeling is that the Republicans have shot themselves in the foot, a couple of times, and the Democrats just want to keep this recovery party going until the election where they hope to take control of Congress.
There was a study done in the 1970s to compare Asian immigrates wealth to African American wealth.
What they found is that Asian's think generationally, and have loyalty to vendors of the same community. When a dollar goes into the Asian community it circulates within the community.
In the African American community the dollars generally leave the community, and go to outside community enterprises.
The second part was that wealth was accumulated in the Asian Community for the benefit of the Children's wealth. Living conditions may be hard all over, but in the Asian Community there is much more tendency to double up with parents, children, and grand children all in one house while every one works.
These are deep rooted cultural issues that are slowly working out.
